    Sitting on the bonnet of a moving vehicle and supporting mahinda. Both stupid acts.

    I am not surprised he was a UPFA supporter, only a UPFAer will be stupid enough to ride on a bonnet

    My deepest sympathies to parents of this boy. Young boys join all these political rallies and play havoc after consuming liquor. UPFA still trying to continue politics similar to they did previously. At least they should advice how to travel in vehicles decently.
